Meet With a Real Estate Agent
Give your realtor as many details as possible so they can have a strong grasp on what you're looking for. After viewing a few homes, those wants may change. They can do some work finding homes you didn't even realize you would love.
As you view each home, take notes and pictures of everything. What is your first impression? Did you hate it the minute you stepped inside? Be honest, not polite. Your realtor wants the truth!
You found your home! Your real estate agent is key here. We know the market and trends. Trust, but question our opinion. We want the best place, price and home for you! Remember: you are not paying our commission, we work for you.

They will arrange the appraisal and ask for more stuff. Do your part to get the information to them so they can move forward. Do you need to shop for insurance? Furniture? Moving truck? Time to start the process of moving ahead.
Congratulations, you're a home owner!Make sure you have switched over your utilities, set up accounts, and paid deposits. It's now time to get the keys to your new home.
Take a moment and enjoy the sometimes long journey. It can take 30, 45, even 60 days for all this to happen, but it is over.
Live and love your new home each day!
